DALLAS The Army & Air Force Exchange Service marks 114 years in operation on July 25, the military retailer announced Friday.

In addition to its flagship main base and post exchange facilities, AAFES operates convenience stores, car care centers, military clothing sales stores, fast food restaurants, retail concession services like flower shops and gift stores, vending, telecommunications support and a wide variety of personal services.
